Big fan of Django here...which style did you use for this?
Can you provide a lyric translation? I'd love to understand the story.
BIAB has really good RT's for gypsy jazz, and you've used them well.
I've found that some of the solo RT's have great phrases, but they jump around alot and at times do not seem to "link" well with each other---but I'll bet that Django wouldn't have a problem with that!
Really enjoyed it!

I'm a big Django fan ... love his style. You did a terrific job recreating that late 30s/early40s sound he was so noted for. Excellent!

Best to you. Be safe ...

I can't speak to the lyrics, but I thought everything else was excellent.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Christian,

Terrific gypsy jazz tune. I’ve got a buddy who loves this kind of stuff—he’ll really enjoy hearing it. (The local theater by me does a gypsy jazz fest each year and my friend attends every minute of the three day event--he's a huge fan of the genre.)

Great work laying down the music. It sounds like I’m listening to a live band. Really well put together. And my, my: that accordion followed by the guitar solo. Excellent work!

Best regards,

Deej

Great Gypsy Jazz. A friend of ours back in the day played outstanding fiddle Gypsy Jazz and we came to love the genre.
This is a great example of it. Those RT's worked extremely well.

Outstanding,

J&B

Loved it. Frenetic but musical and the lyrics are very good. (Google Translate) And well sung!

Really nice - great sound, and composition.

Enjoyed the vocal and the song, which had excellent instrumental choices.

Hello Chris37,

Composition very well done. Each instrument is in its place, with a well-written poetry. It's all good.

Kindly regard

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
